Hi everyone, I know this is old news to most, but I'm and old fart so please excuse me. I'am a disable veteran rated by VA at 60% and awarded 100% IU. I just got my approval letter from the Combat-Related Special Compensation Branch that I've been verified for a total Combined Percentage rating of 60%. Now I'm trying to figure out approxamately how much that will be. Will I get the same amount as what my retired military base pay is or a fraction of that. I'm totally confused on this.
Thanks for the info. I'm pretty much have the same ratings. CRSC = 60%, VA = 70% but awarded 100% IU so I'm not sure just how that works out for calculating the CRSC Pay. I'm also married so I'm not sure if I would get the full $1176.00 or not. Some CRSC web info says I should the full amount and others say I won't get anything. Clearly DFAS keeps the formula for calculating the monthly pay in the room marked above Top Secret. Any thoughts on what you think I might get??????
Thanks Dave_M, Just one last question. At the bottom left corner of the excel spread sheet is has a table that says "CRSC Rates same as Current VA Rates" Since I'm rated by VA as 100% IU do I use the 100% line or the 60% rating that CRSC awarded me?
Ok, Thanks a lot for your help and everyone elses to. I'm just going to use the lower percentage rates. How's that saying go, plan for the worst and hope for the best. Thanks again for everyone's help.
i have been trying the worksheet that was provide and still cannot input anything it keeps telling me that the cells are protected and cannot be modified anyone that can help me please. trying to figure out the CRSC pay, i dont want to get over or underpaid again thank you
DOD will calculate CRSC. There are 3 tabs. Tab 3 is base pay worksheet. You must fill in that sheet to do the numbers. Only Yellow cells may be filled in, so fill those in. You see on the top of the first cell - Click here for base pay worksheet? That will take you there.
I can not get your calculator to open, but I used the little one DFAS had and it said my CRSC payment would be 491 based on 30 percent combat related. I talked to DFAS to see what was going on and was told thier calculator was not accurate because it didn't take into consideration offsets, so, now, I'm lost. I was medically retired at 40 percent with 16 years as an E6....VA rating is now 80 percent/IU..CRSC rating is 30 percent back to 01/2008..can anyone tell me how I figure it from there? And possibly what my award would be? I have a wife who is handicapped, so I get aid and attendance and a daughter who is in school...the VA pays me for them as well..my high 3 was 2000..and DFAS has 1068 listed as my retirement,which, obviously, I don't get because of the VA...
when I applied for ssi and ssdi, I was told that I could still work as a security guard, so I was denied on all levels, from the initial decision, the ALJ and the district court appeal. And since I haven't worked since 2000 because of my disabilities, I don't any 'quarters' of work to draw on.

If you are rated 60% disabled by VA and awarded Disability pay from VA you qualifiy to recieve Social Security. Do not apply for SSI. To get Social Security you need to send a copy of your VA award letter along with appilication. The process may take as much as a year and will, without a dought be turned down twice. On the thrid appeal you will need to higher a lawyer to represent you. Unfortunately the lawyer will get about 10 percent of you back pay, but you should get the full amount of Social Security. Don't let them try to deney you this because they will. Be preistant about it you have the right under the laws to draw Social Security. Also if you are rated 60% disabled by VA or higher you are considered UE (Unemployable) and after about two years VA will review your file and award you 100% along with a new award letter. Once you recieve this new award letter your spouce and children under the age of 21 qualify for 4-years/48-months of schooling along with a monthly allowance of approx. $800.00. Once again be presistant about this because they are told to actively denie all applications. I guess it's their only way to weed out the frauds.
